Can you believe it is September already? Where the heck did the time go? Where did the summer go? I guess the good thing is sometimes (not always) September can be beautiful in the North Country. Let’s hope it is this year.
As most of you know by now, Stampin’ Up!® puts products together in Suites. Then, if you like everything in a Suite they give you one time number so you can purchase it all without having to enter tons of numbers. I love that! This card was made using various products from the Come Sail Away Suite and yes, I did purchase everything in this Bundle so I could use one number (#15275) and get it all. For $94.75 you get the Sailing Home stamp set, Smooth Sailing dies, High Seas Embossing Folder, Come Sail Away Designer Series Paper, Come Sail Away Memories & More card pack, Baker’s Twine and the Sail Away Trinkets.
To make this card I first stamped the lighthouse in Crumb Cake Ink and cut it out using the coordinating die. Then I cut out the captain’s wheel in Crumb Cake cardstock. If you look closely you can see that this die embosses as well as cuts. I cut out a piece of Whisper White cardstock using the Stitched Rectangle Dies, stamped the sea gulls in the corner and adhered that to a piece of the Come Sail Away Designer Series Paper. The sentiment and the two lines (they are not called ropes as my sailor husband tells me) are from the Memories & More card pack. They have adhesive on the back so you just need to stick them down.
Wednesday is the day you can begin to order from the 2019 Holiday Catalog. If you are local and would like one just let me know and I will put one out for you. If you would like a copy mailed to you, you just need to pay for postage. Those of you who ordered $50 or more in the past 12 months should get one free in the mail. Actually, you should have already gotten it so if you haven’t let me know.
I love the lighthouse image, and pairing it with the patterned background is perfect!
Susan this is a wonderful card. I like the way you’ve coordinated the colors, esp the sentiment!
What a lovely card, Susan! I love the way you used the “not ropes” and sentiment from the M&M pack. And one of my favorite neutral combos is Crumb Cake & Navy. Gorgeous!
